Lisa, the Health Nut

I'm lisa and I loooove healthy food!  The lifestyle I chose to live is eating only natural or organic food products, minimally processed whenever possible.  What I can't stand is that people may  automatically assume all "health food" that I eat isn't flavorful or tasty.  THIS IS NOT TRUE!  Why would I eat stuff that doesn't taste good?  So my mission is to spread the word that "healthy" does not mean "tasteless".  Healthy food can be just as yummy as the not-so healthy types!   I'll let you know what foods are good, and which ones aren't so good. :)

Organic Valley Products

Whenever I can, I like to chose organic products over the non-organic, especially when it comes to things like produce, milk, etc. Organic Valley is a brand that makes some delicious organic products. According to the website, “Organic. It’s all we do. In the years since our seven founding farmers got together in 1988, we’ve grown our offerings to over 200 premium quality certified organic products, including milk, cream, cheese, butter, yogurt, eggs, juice, meat, soy and produce.”

So, I was happy to receive some coupons for free Organic Valley products from Organic Valley. I decided to try the Organic 2% Reduced-Fat Milk, Organic Fat Free Milk, and the Organic Plain Yogurt (haha I realized that paragraph said the word organic about 5 times! :)

The Organic 2% Reduced-Fat Milk and Organic Fat Free Milk were both a treat. They both tasted so pure and real. I really enjoyed them both, even without cereal or anything else. The Organic 2% Reduced-Fat Milk even had a creamy, rich taste to it, something I’m not used to. I usually always opt for skim or fat free, maybe 1%, but not 2% or whole milk, but decided to give the 2% Reduced-Fat a try. And glad that I did! I can see myself buying both these organic milks in the future!

The Organic Plain Yogurt was also a bit different. It came in a 32 oz. bottle, rather than a container. I poured some in a bowl, and at first thought… is this just a thicker milk? It had a more liquidy consistency than what I am used to for yogurt, but still provided that tart yogurt taste! It tasted very fresh, and I loved that I could close and reuse the bottle after using some of it. I also loved the fact that it had 2 grams of fiber for an 8 oz serving! 4 1/2 stars

After trying some plain, I decided to mix it up a bit. I added some of those chocolate-milk mix powder to the plain yogurt, and then put it in the freezer for a bit to let it thicken, and get slightly frozen. Then I sliced up some banana, and added a dollop of whipped cream. What a treat! The yogurt was perfect with the chocolate-milk mix, and it was certainly a satisfying and healthy snack for me!
